Forum: etree Subject: This guy says blind people don't go online

That's just ignorant. Of course blind people go online. Anyone from the visually-impaired community want to back me up on this?

Blind people use audial browsers and screen readers, among other devices. They read text. XHTML is text. Screen readers can read it. Flash is not text. Screen readers can not read Flash. This is Web Design Fundamentals 101.

Pardon my saying so, but anyone who thinks they are a web designer and has no clue about accessibility, are flat living in the past, and didn't read this:
I linked you to it before, so there you go, a second chance.
Ignorance is correctable.
PS:there's nothing on somebodyscloset that can't be done without Flash, so what's the point?

I'll tell you what... I started this WHOLE posting with trying to help someone with my viewpoints on what I look for in a band's website... and this is what happened. You know what, go to my website or don't. I asked for help from people and talk about suggestions and not ONE person gave me any hints as to what they think I should do, they just put me down. So, I'm done. And I DO APPOLOGIZE TO ALL SEEING IMPARED PEOPLE. I might be ignorant (not completely knowing), but I am a musician at heart doing my own band's web design. Later all.
